Workshop: “One Health in Development Cooperation” at the European Students Conference (ESC)Image result for European Students' Conference germany

Location: Berlin, Germany

September 25 - 27, 2017

Organizer: European Students' Conference

Scope: International Event

Fee: 25- 100 €

Open to Public: Yes

Description: Previously focused on medicine, this year's European Students Conference will create a platform for multidisciplinary exchange of knowledge by including veterinary students as well as students of biotechnology, biology etc, bringing students from many different fields and cultures together. This year’s Conference topic is “Genetic Engineering- when chance meets choice”, which is a interdisciplinary topic itself. The interdisciplinary Organising Committee aims to present the scientific topic on various levels; e.g. the possible influence of GMO in future medical therapies as well as genetically modified mosquitoes for eradicating Malaria. Both examples will likely have an impact on the environment and we want our participants to keep that in mind. A final panel discussion will invite experts to discuss with conference participants the possible consequences of GMO in our society. 

Besides the main topic, students are invited to actively present their own scientific work from their different fields in order to win the student competition and hopefully be inspired by their colleagues and how they tackled research-based challenges.  Participants are invited to attend further workshops, which include the development of a medicine, working in a lab, gender medicine etc.

Tuberculosis and One Health: An interdisciplinary Workshop

Location: Berlin, Germany

November 3, 2017

Organizer: Tierärzte Ohne Grenzen Freiwillige Gruppe and IVSA Berlin

Scope:  Local Event

Fee: None

Open to Public: Yes

Description: Organized by veterinarians and vet students, the event will take place at Berlin's teaching hospital to reach out to students an professionals in human medicine. We will start with six brief presentations from veterinarians and doctors who will focus on different aspects of tuberculosis. We will consider the different species that are affected by the disease (be it animal or human,) the significance it can have for the meat we consume, and social, geographical, and environmental consequences.

The second part of the workshop will consist of a "World Café." We will split up into groups and visit separate stands, meeting each lecturer and discussing what we have learnt. Our goal is to reflect on how clinicians, researchers, and scientists alike can join forces to solve large, global issues. We believe that tuberculosis is a pressing and current issue that will serve as a good example to stress the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration.

Workshop: “Workshop on meta-analysis”

The workshop includes thus mostly working sessions in which the moderator is expected to introduce the session, to facilitate the collective work and to conclude the session. Only session 3 (the session on meta-study methodology) is devoted to the presentation of methodologies by an invited speaker. Because the meta-analysis implies quantities such as the OHness index developed by WG1 and integrates the case studies evaluated by WG2, members WG1 and WG2 should participate to the workshop.

Description: The area on “Biodiversity and Health” is rapidly gaining importance in the arena of Global Health, and an unprecedented agenda is being currently set bringing together WHO, the Secretariat for the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and other organizations. The impressive CBD/WHO/UNEP report “Connecting Global Priorities, Biodiversity and Human Health. A State of Knowledge Review” demonstrates the complexity of biodiversity and human health interlinkages.
Based on this report, a new module on “Biodiversity and Human Health” will be launched in Spring 2018 in the MOOC on "Global Health at the Human-Animal-Ecosystem Interface" on Coursera "https://www.coursera.org/learn/global-health-human-animal-ecosystem/home/welcome".
Participants from all over the world registered in the MOOC are invited to watch two introductory video-lectures by the new Director-General of WHO Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, and by Cristina Romanelli from the Secretariat for the Convention on Biological Diversity and to contribute to the future module by answering two questions:
What is your definition on biodiversity? Why do you think biodiversity is important in your local context? All the information collected will help build a crowdsourced global definition on Biodiversity and raise awareness on the importance of biodiversity for human health.

Website: Participants have to register to the MOOC "Global Health at the Human-Animal-Ecosystem Interface" on Coursera: https://www.coursera.org/learn/global-health-human-animal-ecosystem/home/welcome
